Beautiful property, but lackluster service. Restaurant was slow and non-responsive. Rooms were not fully cleaned. The hiking and food saved the day. Probably won’t return because the service did not live up to the price, overall.

Absolutely wonderful! I loved the location best. Waking up on the side of a mountain surrounded by nature was truly amazing! The farmer and chicken coop talk was so much fun! Despite it being rainy, the location near Big Sur and Carmel Valley made it that much better! Would

Not impressed with the quality of the room, no housekeeping before 5pm, or the hour wait for food regardless of time of day. For $850 a night, no thank you. There are better options in the area, do your homework

If you're going to charge premium prices, please ensure your service, and cleaning staff also provide the same experience for guests. This has been my most disappointing stay at any premium country club or resort.. Immediately upon arrival, we noticed large ants roaming around

I’m not sure. You would need to ask them. I saw stables at the top of a hiking trail off property. They may offer lessons in the spring but not sure to be honest.

Yes, they should be. Best to call the resort. That’s what I do if I have a question. Any yahoo answering questions could just be guessing.

We didn’t have a chance to see the st Lucia room. Our accommodations were lovely. Very private and our balcony that had a tub on it was perfect. Our view was obscured by trees which is what we were looking for. The views all over the property were nice.

"The Bluff Suites offer a great view of the resort and valley."
"A view of the valley is always great, but almost any room will make you feel like you are in an oak grove."
"Rooms on downhill side of parking are level approach verses walking up a trail. There was a room below us and we never herd any noise."
"Bluff Suites are up high above the main lodge. End unit was perfectly quite, even though it was a lower unit."
"I love the 200's and always request a top floor, there is also a bluff section at the top of the property."
